Matt is a recent graduate of Lutheran Brethren Seminary in Fergus Falls, MN and the new pastor at Rock of Ages Lutheran Brethren Church in Seattle, WA. He grew up in Tioga North Dakota, is married to his wife Julia, and is a father to Thor (three), Phoebe (one), and one more who is on the way (Due December!). Matt loves to tell others about the good news of what Jesus has done for them whether that is on a Sunday morning, in small groups, or out in the community. He is also an avid fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (or just football in general). In his spare time he enjoys all things related to roasting/brewing coffee, woodworking, music, and most of all - finding new ways to have fun with his kids.
